    Sales Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sony (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Management was not prepared for employer. (paperwork not organized). Too laid back. Interrogated employers personal background. Judgmental upon appearance/race. No eye contact/fiddling with objects during interview. Didn't seem thrilled or interested in interviewing employer. Interview took place in the same room as staff locker room (very disturbing & hard to concentrate). No energy - Failed to speak upon company's pros/benefits.

    Typical behavioral interview process. They asked a lot of behavioral questions and what I have been involved in in school. For this position they want people who are outgoing and able to connect with people. They were really nice and friendly.
